Abortion: a unique issue.

One of the basic tenets of morality is that one may do as one wishes so long as it does not harm another. Abortion presents a unique problem, however, as one person (or embryo, fetus, label of your choice) is actually living INSIDE the body of another. The two are intertwined, and if the pregnancy is disruptive to the mother, there is only one way she can end it, and that way insists that she harm the person inside her. Tough choice, which is why I think that the question of abortion should be between the woman and her own conscience.
